It’s hard to believe that this semester is coming to an end! This a bittersweet time of year, where summer is so close that you can’t wait to finish all of your final exams and projects yet you don’t want to say goodbye to your friends who are graduating or living in other parts of the country for the summer.
Here at the College of Charleston we have a very special graduation tradition: all of the women wear white dresses and carry red roses, and the men wear white tuxedos with red rose buttoners. The graduation ceremony is held in the Cistern, one of the oldest and prettiest areas of campus. It was the backdrop for movies like “Dear John”, “The Patriot”, and “The Notebook” (I had friends who were extras….soo cool!). Tradition says that a CofC student cannot walk across the actual Cistern (the raised platform shown below) until the day of graduation. Graduation is a big deal at CofC, and I can’t wait to attend this year and watch as my friends graduate!

Although I won’t be donning a white dress this year, (I still have one more year at this beautiful college, thankfully) I will be wearing Emma Graham to celebrate!
The Griffin dress-so comfortable and breathable, and who can resist that coral!
